Inclusive Classrooms Summer Symposium

Inclusive Classrooms Summer Symposium

Leadership at the Gillings School is excited to host the second Inclusive Excellence Annual Symposium for faculty, instructional staff and teaching assistants. The symposium will be held June 14-16 from 9 a.m. – noon.

The Inclusive Classrooms Summer Symposium is an annual skill-building event for members of the Gillings community to create more inclusive classroom experiences. With varying topics every year, the symposium provides instructors, including faculty, instructional staff and teaching assistants with history, theory and practical skills to critically analyze their course content, delivery methods and assessment materials to foster more inclusive teaching environments.

This year they will be focusing on decolonizing learning spaces within academia, including auditing courses to improve inclusiveness and managing interpersonal interactions and fostering classroom relationships that reduce the incidence and impact of microaggressions.

This nine-hour event counts toward the Gillings School’s annual inclusive excellence training requirement.

Registration required.
